america wants? now, listening to the president on tuesday night, i noticed a subtle but important shift in how he is thinking about the second term. in both 2008 and this past tuesday, president obama told a story during his speech. in 2008, the narrative of the then president-elect obama gave was about his win was a culmination of struggle. he told the narrative of 106-year-old ann nixon cooper who cast her ballot in atlanta that evening. >> she was born just a general ration past slavery, a time when there were no cars on the road or planes in the sky. when someone like her couldn't vote for two reasons. because she was a woman and because of the color of her skin. and tonight i think about all that she's seen throughout her century in america. the heartache and the hope. the struggle and the progress. the times we with told that we can't and the people who pressed on with that american creed, yes, we can. >> so in 2008, the president saw his own election as fulfilling a legacy of struggle. but the story he told in 2012 was not a story of culmination, it was a story of initialat

moment for mitt romney? >> storms bring the best and the worst out in america. they both seem to show up during a natural disaster. a natural disaster is one that crosses a couple of states. i lived through hurricane hugo in 1989 and watched the politics of a hurricane. we were out of power. my business was down. for politicians, they have to be very careful. it can make or break a political career. this is where the american public expect the government to step up, not just for a couple of days or a couple of sound bites. right now, it is going to be the sound bites that will get us to this election. president obama has showed leadership. governor romney, i don't think there was a natural disaster while he was head of the state. it is a teachable moment. it is one where once you land in new york, you see the city is a little empty and people are fairly desperate and the desperation is just going to start. our hearts and prayers are from people that live in harm's way and people that live through katrina know what it is. the political ramifications could show up on tuesday. >> is
